Don't you just love vintage samplers? The kind that schoolgirls stitched while learning the alphabet. My Fleur De Lis sampler has a fresh and modern look when stitched with luminous, Paris-pink silk thread on white linen. Hearts, flowers and French fleur de lis are sprinkled throughout this design.
If you look closely at the early French alphabet samplers, you will notice some letters missing. Many classic French samplers do not have the letters “J” and “U” in their alphabets because they were not part of the early Latin alphabet.
The pattern can be stitched with white floss on colored linen too. Have fun and stitch this piece in your favorite colors! The sampler looks pretty on pink linen with white silk floss too. Stitch something soulful with your own hands. Experience the joy of embroidery!
The finished size of the sampler is approximately 9 by 14 inches
